Outreachy expressly invites applicants from around the world who are women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people.

Outreachy also expressly invites applications from U.S. residents and nationals of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American/American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.

Anyone who faces under-representation, systemic bias or discrimination in the technology industry of their country is welcome to apply.

Outreachy is your chance to work with experienced open source mentors! We're still seeking mentors, so our project list is still TBD.

Past outreachy internship projects have included programming, user experience, documentation, illustration, graphical design, data science, project marketing, user advocacy, or community event planning.

@sagesharp Hey! It's nice to see you on Masto. I think I vaguely remember you being around before, but cool to see you on a public account!

@JordiGH Hello! Yeah, I have accounts on other instances, but this is more free software focused. Or at least that's my goal, although my various other interests always seem to bleed into accounts that start focused.

@sagesharp Hey, this sounds cool. Is this an annual thing?
Mostly since I have my senior year coming up next year and will likely have to look for internships by then.

@mel Outreachy internships run twice a year (May to August and December to March). So yes, there's plenty of opportunities to apply in the future.

@sagesharp seems like straight white males are being under represented in your workforce. What are you doing to address this lack of diversity?
